GM motorsports facility delayed by pandemic will now shift focus to military vehicles

The Charlotte Observer, and Bob Pockrass of FOX Sports, report that the planned General Motorsports facility in the Charlotte, NC area will turn its attention from motorsports to manufacturing military vehicles.

In May, GM announced a delay in building the Charlotte Technical Center due to the pandemic.

The facility was originally announced in January of 2020, with plans to open mid-year. At the time, General Motors said in a statement that " The new technical center provides GM the opportunity to expand and enhance its support for Chevrolet NASCAR race teams as well as various other GM racing teams."
